In Soviet Russia, funds hedge YOU!
Soviet Russia kidnapped the old Paul Krugman and replaced him with a Politburo-approved alternative.
Shit, that´s really bad. That means he knows exactly that the USD is utterly fucked. He could talk about it as a possible outcome, but now that it is almost certain he wants to calm the shepple as much as possible. Seing this old article is terrifying, who is left to disagree? I guess Roubini bought some Gold on the very he was teasing the Gold and Silver bulls. Fucking hypocrits.
The Dollar could totally collapse. Right now I think all TPTB are just trying to keep everything running for as long as possible while they are making preparations behind the scenes.
This made me spit beer out of my nose. Sophomoric humor, I know. But I found this very funny. Thank you for not ending the first post of this article with "Bitchezzz".
... and another one's gone. Another one bites the dust. Doom doom doom another one bites the dust. Doom we're gonna get to you...
why do ppl pay 2 and 20, for no alpha? Especially no alpha in down markets, which managers should be hedged against.
but Cramer said he was listening to the best, who the hell is that? The street.com...ho
Maybe we are realizing investment banks and hedge funds don't lead to increased productivity? A wooden stake and a vampire killer would do better than any hedge fund.
But investment banks work with much more leverage=risk
Easy explanation-Bernanke . This fucker is grossly distorting the market.
I agree. Fundamentals? Ha! Not with the 500 at 1250!
Formerly reliable technicals aren't working for me over the past few years.
I think there is true talent in some of the funds. Only the real bright managers are doing well this year. I'm impressed by the strong performers this year.
Quite. For legitimate investors (pension funds etc) as well as hedge funds. No sane investor will want to place money into a stock market that is propped up purely by Central Bank and Government intervention and manipulation.
And the exchanges wonder why volumes are so low (other than the HFTs) and money is being withdrawn.
And if they can't, just what will happen to that ultra critical $2 trillion marginal purchasing power, levered 3 times,
Is this really true, 3 times Levered,
Look at the total balance sheet to shareholders equity ratios of banks. It's more than 3 to 1 in all cases!
Somebody's making money this week, sometimes you scratch your head but these guys are intent on showing a positive Dec/year...
Indeed there are several hedge funds which are positive and outperforming the market. Of those funds, the ones which have the highest reward/risk ratios will claim the majority of the funds which the underperformers will disgorge over the next few months. If you're looking for employment, look no further than that short list. If you're working at one of the underperforming funds, then it's time to start looking, or start your own business (whether it be managing investments or oysters).
It appears the 'Optimist from Omaha' has lost his magic touch... Berkshire Hathaway is down -10% in 2011.. all those State aided 'investments' turing a bit sour Warren?
...just wait to see what the Bear-Trap has waiting for you on Bank of America and the 100 years past its Sell-by-Date train set you bought
...an "Investment in America" ...only trouble was you picked the worst parts
it's 'toast' for the Buffet breakfast
It couldn't happen to a better hypocrite klepto.
do you really think the fbi wiretaps are gonna stop the hedgies? They will be drinking gin martini's on a beach in the caymans using morse code
Hedge Funds forgot to hedge. Gross & Net Exposures are still pretty high from what I last saw, they don't seem to have learned much of a lesson, unless of course the market races ahead.
A lot of what I believe to be the best funds are positioned much more conservatively. From a macro perspective, not many beat Bluecrest or Brevan Howard and they are both extremely conservatively positioned.
the only funds that did well this year were those that embraced the safety trade as bonds. Bernanke made sure to reward these loyal followers. Lets see how long you can keep the charade going Bernank - see you in 2012.
Seriously though, judging by the market timing record of zerohedge had Tyler been running money he'd be down at least as much as Paulson.. This site has been perma-bearish for years... Clearly, a case of "those who can't make money - write"
